EOOS takes forty kitchen utensils and uses them to reconfigure the entire world of the kitchen. Away from the well-trodden paths of design theory and design history EOOS deploys Poetical Analysis to describe the creative process of design and usage of objects. This design philosophy seeks out intuitive images, rituals and myths serving as a point of departure for the creative process. Ancient myths meet with today’s high tech.
For this publication images of kitchens from different epochs (wood cuts, paintings, photos, real-life objects) have been transformed so that they appear on a par with each other. We see them first as shadows, then endowed with signs of corporeality and materiality. This approach gives way to a completely new discourse of image and text, independent of time and space. A new philosophy of design.
